****not too proud :( ****

Friday, February 01, 2013

Took my measurements this morning and in the month of January I only lost 2 lbs and 2.4 inches. Yet somehow, in December, during the holidays and celebrations I managed to lose 7lbs. I shouldn't say somehow - I KNOW how. I gave myself a pass. I wrote a blog at the start of January proclaiming to the world that I know longer feel the need to be 170 lbs, that I was going to LIVE and lose slowly preparing myself for maintenance. I got a second job. I didn't track every single meal, every single day. Was I happier in January than in December? No, not really. I was too comfortable in January, complacent. I liked the me I was in December. I had a ball and i worked my butt off and I ate sensibly and then ate with abandon when with my family. I lost over 3 times more weight. So am I disappointed in myself? ABSOLUTELY. And I know I have a lot of Sparkfriends who love to shower me with love, support, optimism. No need today. I am not depressed. I am not sad. I am now focused and alert. I am painfully aware. I allowed myself to have a trial run and it failed. February will be similar to December. I have a big Superbowl party this weekend. The following week I will be hosting a bake sale. The week after that, Derrell and I will be on vacation in LA. During those times, I will have fun and eat with abandon (though that typically means about 200 calories outside of range at max, I have found). On the days leading up to that, I will eat sensibly and chug water. I will workout consistently and on the morning of those chow down fests, I will put in a high intensity workout, burning 700-1000 calories. I can promise you that February will look nothing like january.

    Sounds like you're very aware of how what you put in affects the results you get. Glad to see you're not feeling defeated, that you're taking control back, and going to kick some serious but in February! Sounds like you have a busy month coming up. Have fun! emoticon

    I understand...seems my scale has been stuck on the exact same number for the past 2 weeks, however I am grateful that I did lose 6 pounds in January (my lowest weight loss month so far). I am revamping my plan/routine for February. Sounds like you are going to have a fun filled month. Have fun and best wishes.

    Love it...glad you're aware and on to getting better. I'm learning that this is a trial and error which is part of our lives. With anything we live through there will be challenges that will make us stronger and wiser. I know we both will still be around on February 28th and that we both will be wiser and healthier and in a better place than we are today. So here's to February and busting through all obstacles. Let's go get'em!!!!

    You shouldn't be disappointed, you should be proud. What you have lost in 2 months,is what I have lost in 5 1/2 months, and this 1 pound I have been up and down with , but I feel better and I am proud of myself for staying with this. Sounds like you have a plan, run with it see what happens, but be proud of yourself for what ever the out come is. Good luck and have fun.

    You know what to do and you know how to do it. You can do it. A bad day, week or even month doesn't mean you can't, it just means you need to take a deep breath and refocus and JUST DO IT as the saying goes. YOU CAN and I am sure you WILL DO IT in February.
